The winter months can be hard on your skin, so as you prepare to host and attend events and parties this holiday season, it is important to take care of your skin. Joana Teixeira tells us how.
Here are a few top tips on how to keep your skin in the best condition, from how to get glowing skin to quelling fears surrounding petroleum jelly side effects in order to maintain that all important glow.
1) How to get glowing skin
Whether you are invited out for last minute drinks after work with your colleagues or hosting a party yourself and short of time, it is important your skin has a natural glow to work with! Here are three ways to get that natural glow.
2) Increase your vitamin C intake
Vitamin C is vital to the natural luminosity of your skin, and adding it into your winter self-care routine is a sure way to brighten and give your skin the lift it needs. Whether you decide to use a serum containing vitamin C during your daily skin care routine, or simply increase the intake of the vitamin through your diet, you will reap the rewards in gaining a perfect glow all party season long.
3) Keep your skin care simple
During the colder months it can be easy to think that you need to lather up in tonnes of product to protect your skin, but clogging up your pores could cause breakouts; and that is not a good look for party season. A simple cleanse, tone and moisturise every day will ensure you keep your skin clear and glowing.
Exfoliating your skin once a week, is a great way to help bring a natural glow to your complexion. Gently removing all the dead skin cells will not only smooth and illuminate your skin, but also help to make your skin look naturally younger. Trying a treatment such as a microdermabrasion facial will help to rejuvenate your skin and reduce fine lines and wrinkles; what’s not to love?
5) Moisturise regularly
During the winter months, it is easy for your skin to become dry and without regular moisturising you can end up with a damaged complexion. Products such as petroleum jelly could be just what you’re in need of. You need no longer ask the question “is Vaseline safe?” thanks to its triple purification process that ensures the removal of impurities; making it a safe choice of moisturiser for your skin this winter, as it is unlikely for your skin to experience any petroleum jelly side effects.
6) Stay hydrated
Going out and enjoying the party season often means an increase in the amount of salty foods and alcohol that you are consuming; and it is so important to ensure that you are balancing it out with plenty of hydration to keep your skin smooth and supple. Adding in a couple of extra glasses of water or foods with high water content is important to keeping that gorgeous natural glow in your skin.
7) Make time for sleep
Party season often means a lot of late nights out on the town, getting in later than originally planned and losing track of time. As good as it is to get out and enjoy the events and parties you’re hosting or have been invited to; it is more important than ever during winter to try and get at least eight hours sleep. Not only will you find yourself feeling rested and refreshed but it will give your skin chance to rejuvenate and renew itself which in turn will help to maintain your natural glow.
Now that you have a few tips on how to keep your skin healthy, glowing and ready throughout this party season, it’s down to you to implement this advice and simply enjoy all your upcoming events!
